I don't know what to choose.
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Darkness.

Could you tell me the similarities, differences and what Pokemon you can become?

Which game can you become Riolu?

There's a bit too much to list here, so I'll give you the Bulbapedia links:

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness

Since Explorer's of Sky is the later version, look under New Features to see what's different from Explorer's of Time/ Darkness (which are sister versions). There are a lot of small differences as well, with NPC changes etc., that don't really affect the main game play. There are a few new starting Pokemon/ playable characters added, so now you can be a Riolu etc. EDIT: Riolu was added in Explorers of Sky

I enjoyed the Explorer's of Darkness storyline a bit more, but that was just me. The Secret Bazaar feature in Explorers of Sky was pretty neat though; it made dungeons easier.

thanks marzipan. I'll ask for Explorers of Sky for mah birthday xD. Oh and, i prefer the old ones like red rescue team and blue graphics better than what i saw in the 3ds one. thats just what i like realy. i think these storylines moved me. T-T But yeah, thanks :3
Darkness is way better. So much more wonder mail codes and things. I never played sky though :P
You might want to consider the new series coming out, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity (in case you didn't know). It'd be out in March, but for 3DS only.

The differences are the same in most games. You can find different Pokemon in the two. If you want new transformations, get explorer of the sky. Those are really the only differences ingame
